Sarana Archives Vol. 09: Kernel Discharge
On Friday I finally bought some nutmeg, which had interested me for some time. I ingested 20 grams of it and waited a moment, and decided to take in another 20 grams because I didn't feel much effects. That was a mistake. I came down by the Sunday evening.
The first cassette was recorded on Friday (tracks 1 to 12), and the second cassette was filled on Saturday and Sunday. The music responded to what I sensed to be pleasing, and it was a flowing experience.
I had originally named the compilation 'Pähkinä', which means 'a nut' in Finnish. Sudden sounds gave an immediate feeling of a sort of panic, which vibrated through the body and tingled excitedly.
There are some samples used, and they were grabbed from unknown TV shows that went on during the event. Some samples were from the immediate surroundings. I didn't have a TV set, just a VCR and it was some scrambled satellite channel anyway, so I wasn't able to see what I was sampling.
For instance the sample which created the foundation for 'Luon' was a coincidence, and the record button was intuitively pressed just at the right moment. Coincidences are the intersections of long paths of separate events, which have been in the making since the beginning of the universe. It's a complex totality of vibrations, which we can observe according to our abilities, and on which we live.
The less the self is involved, the more you are carried away and the more you are connected with the present moment, which we all share. Actually, the present moment spans through the entire universe. The information takes its time to travel through space, and that makes things seem distant.
At the end of Luon I pulled out the screw driver which held a mechanism in the tape recorder electrically connected, and that made the tape slow down instantly.
I must say I don't recommend experimenting with nutmeg to anyone. It was an exhausting experience, although beautiful things happened.
Compilated from the session Pähkinä.
